    Not Sure About This One

    I joined but I'm wondering if I should have... Who determines beauty? Are we following any specific standards on this? I think everyone is beautiful and has something special to give. So you may have crooked teeth... guess that makes you original. Look at Jewel... not a straight...

    It's Getting Worse

    I didn't really have any problem with my looks during puberty, I was tomboyish and un-fussed but recently I've really started to hate the way I look, to the point that looking at photos of myself makes me cry. I've never felt like this before, I mean, everyone has a bad day once...

    What Am I?

    I have a man who says at least that I am beautiful or pretty everyday. I cannot convince him otherwise. I have never felt beautiful; I only felt average. He always make me blush when he says it. I just don't want to believe it even though I want to acknowledge that its true. I...

    I'M Just Different And Can'T Love Myself

    My style isn't like anyone else's. I've gone through more than you can imagine. I look at myself and sometimes I cry. I have a scar. It's half a foot. It's on my gut, I can't wear a bikini. I've always loved the beach, but now it's torture. I get to see beautiful people in the...

    Sometimes I See It, Most Of The Time I Don't

    It gets depressing. I wonder if this is common outside our group. Compliments roll off my back. Guys are silly and fickle. My boyfriend is blinded by love. I can think of a million excuses to justify my perceived 'uglyness', and why they are wrong. Sometimes, I get into a mode...

    I Feel So Ugly, But People Tell Me I'm Not!

    From Neutral, to Ugly....to Beautiful....

    My parents are deeply religious people. So, they have never told me that I was a pretty or beautiful girl. Instead they told me I was a good girl and a good daughter because of my "actions". So as a kid I had  NO idea how people saw me, I would look in d mirror and...

    I know I'm very beautiful.

    It's not a subjective thing. I get comments about my beauty all the time - unwanted comments. Unwanted attention. I used to get everything based on my looks: free stuff, sex if I wanted to, discounts, high scores. 5 years ago I became a model and it was a success. But I went...

    Yeah...

    This is part two to my last experience.

    .. I hadn't added a picture with it. I have a scab on my nose and my teeth are chipped from multiple injuries. A lot of people say I'm pretty and my eyes are beautiful, but I think they are blind. :(

    Whats Wrong With My Mind?????

    All my life, people  have told me that im beautiful, but for whatever reason, all i see when i look at myself are pores, a too small upper lip, weird knees, and thighs that touch. Maybe the fact that half of my family is overweight, me not being part of that majority, im...
